Since wood is a viscoelastic material, creep is a possibility in wooden structures. Creep will alter the strictly elastic parameters defined in initial wood characterization tests because its behaviour is influenced by the material’s rheology, even at constant stress levels. Models in which the immediate elastic deformation is increased by a viscous deformation, resulting in
